A sick video game where players commit sexual assaults against female characters has been pulled from Steam after a worldwide backlash.
A preview of "Rape Day," which is developed by Desk Plant, had been listed on Steam, a popular distribution platform for video games, according to media reports. “Rape Day’s” gameplay advertised "violence, sexual assault, non-consensual sex, obscene language, necrophilia, and incest," the Independent reports.
The rapeday.com website describes “Rape Day” as “a visual novel” and “a dark comedy with pornographic elements” where players control “a terrifying psychopath during a zombie apocalypse.”

“Your choices affect the progression of the story,” the website says.
“Rape Day” has sparked widespread outrage on social media and thousands of people signed Change.org petitions to ban the game. “This is only going to vilify rape and violence towards women,” explained the page of one petition.
In the U.K., Scottish National Party M.P. Hannah Bardell described the game as “utterly sickening” and called for a government review into “development and hosting of such abhorrent content.”

Steam developer Valve Corp. finally bowed to pressure, announcing on Wednesday that it would not offer “Rape Day” on its platform. “Over the past week you may have heard about a game called 'Rape Day' coming soon to Steam,” it explained, in a blog post. “Today we've decided not to distribute this game on Steam.”

“Much of our policy around what we distribute is, and must be, reactionary—we simply have to wait and see what comes to us via Steam Direct,” it added. “We then have to make a judgement call about any risk it puts to Valve, our developer partners, or our customers. After significant fact-finding and discussion, we think 'Rape Day' poses unknown costs and risks and therefore won't be on Steam.”
Valve’s choice of language for its statement has also been slammed, with critics calling for a strong condemnation of “Rape Day” and its horrific gameplay.

This is not the first time that a game on the Steam platform has sparked outrage. The BBC reports that Valve kicked a school shooting game off Steam prior to the game’s release last year. An online petition against the game racked up more than 280,000 petitions on Change.org.

tl;dr Valve allowed a VN about a dude raping people during a zombie outbreak or some shit. While this would no doubt be vile shit to the eyes of many, I can't help but feel there's other bad shit that gets away by being more subtle about it.

Link to the game? downloadable Chris and Barb content?
Dunno about Chris and Barb but even if one didn't care about the content, just look at those models. Literally ripped straight from Deviant Art.

I love all the Google result for Rape Day are a bunch of journalists bitching about how the gaming industry can't be trusted.
While they can say this sort of thing normalizes rape, one has to be a complete incel or loveshy to be into that. Even then, I'm willing to bet that Steam has worse titles than this after Gaben decided to allow titty games onto Steam. They're just more subtle about it than something calling itself "Rape Day".

Was gonna say... the whole zombie apocalypse rape game has already been done by Japan and with better art. All this does is prove the West continues to be inferior to the East.

Of course these dipshits had to take the bait.
Every few years a game tries to spark controversy in the most baitish possible way. 4 years ago it was Hatred, now every tard is using this game as a maypole to spark controversy that isnt really there.

I swear, if these mouthbreathers had half a brain they would just report and ignore the game.
